Montana drivers who are concerned about road safety, particularly when it comes to drunk drivers, can take certain steps to protect themselves. Defensive driving is a form of driving that can help people save their own lives when they are sharing the road with drunk drivers.
It is important to first be able to recognize the signs that another driver on the road may be drunk. Typical driving signs may include making turns that are too wide, driving in the center of the road and narrowly miss hitting another vehicle. Drunk drivers may also be driving too slowly, braking erratically, making sudden or illegal turns, turning or swerving abruptly, driving on the wrong side of the road or reacting too slowly traffic signals.
